CCO ANNOUNCEMENTS JANUARY 3rd 2023

JANUARY 3, 2024 

 

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you and those you hold dear a healthy, happy, music-filled 2024.

1. REHEARSALS RESUME MONDAY JANUARY 8 - Beethoven 3 

Rehearsals resume Monday, at The 519, 519 Church Street, 7:30 to 9:30pm. 

Music Director Andrew Chung asks that we prepare Beethoven 3, a major work for our March 23 concert, for the upcoming rehearsal. 

Any new musicians who hope to play at the March 23 concert, please let the Concertmaster, Gemma Donn, know at  donn.gemma@gmail.com. Most brass and wind positions now have waiting lists. 

Musicians must print their own music (see paragraph 2 below) and bring a music stand to the rehearsals. Potential new musicians can play two trial rehearsals before deciding whether to join the CCO. Please see the Door Volunteers on arrival at the rehearsal. To become a member, musicians must complete an application form, a Media Consent Form, and must pay fees. Fees now are $80 until the end of June; students are half fee. The CCO’s policy is to ensure the requirement to pay fees does not prevent someone from sharing the joy of making music with us; accordingly, the Chair has the discretion to waive or reduce fees for those who find payment will cause financial hardship, emitchell17278@gmail.com


2. MUSICIANS ONLY PAGE 


If you do not yet have an account on the CCO website, CCorchestra.org, please go on the site and create one following the steps. Any issues, see Tetsuya Kobayashi, flute, at rehearsals or contact him at tty103g@gmail.com.

On the Musicians Only page you will now find links to the music for the March 23 concert, plus photos and recordings of our December concert. Tetsuya provides further details and hyperlinks: 

1. Recording of the December concert is up on Musicians Only page for  you to enjoy. 

2. Various photos from the December Concert are also posted on Musicians Only page. You can also upload media on your own if you’d like to share something with everyone.You do not have to forward it to Tetsuya first. 

3. Sheet music for Kozertstuck Op.98 is also available. (This is the piece that will feature Tetsuya as a soloist on March 23 and we want it to be great!) Musicians must print there own parts - there will not be hard copies provided.
